It definitely does give one chills. He's very lucky to be alive. The trainer who got to him first was a former Vietnam field doctor and acted very quickly. Also, the end of the ice he was on made a big difference. If he'd been on the other side of the ice, he may not have made it in time. I'm not sure if his interview(s) on it are up on YT still, but it's some pretty powerful stuff.
